Thanks to everyone that ordered the incense and especially to those, that made use of the opportunity to get their hands on the pyrographed “Sabbath Seal”. The offer was sold out within 24 hours, which makes me proud and encourages me to proceed on this wicked journey. Special thanks to Antinomian Antipodean and Hanged Man’s Seed Apothecary for extra supplies.
Thank you for your patience and continued support!
On a personal note, my move went well. The new work place is nearly set up and I have started discovering Düsseldorf and making new friendships. It is still a big change and I have to get used to living without a garden here and adopting to a new rhythm. I still have a few plants in pots and sown simple kitchen herbs last weekend. Meanwhile the green in the garden in Dresden are exploding. Likewise does the nature around me.
So continue the hunt and the attempts at trying to capture fleeting moments of enticement. The grey heron watches and leaves, only to return in unexpected moments. The shower of cherry blossoms in the light of the rising sun is long gone again. The impressions live on in the mind and heart and art of the magician, who keeps collecting and processing, surrounded by the current bloom of fragrant lilac and carnation…

Teufelskunst is moving to a new location and the web shop will be closed, starting:
Easter Sunday, 1st of April
Sunday, 15th of April
All items listed in the shop will be marked “out of stock” until I am able to resume business later in April. Once I am settled, I will pick up work again and continue crafting new occult art for you.
So long, Teufelskunst is wishing you a blessed Good Friday and spring time … may it finally commence!

Teufelskunst is slowly returning from the darkness of its winter cave, where most time was dedicated to the creation of new artwork and crafting of baneful incense, blackthorn crowns (sold out) and cursing sigil discs (available again in autumn). Thanks to everyone that made use of the opportunity to purchase and leave feedback for these items!
The first months of the year were also spent processing herbal harvest as well as sorting seeds and filling the next seed boxes. There will be 6 larges boxes again, as well as 4 black flower themed boxes. Accepting e-mail reservations now.
Further work in the making: new sigil talismans and incense blends for Walpurgisnacht and Beltane celebration. Expect updates on these in April. A few new mandrake plants and art are also planned to be available again in spring.
Lastly, a special item is in the making: a commissioned black alder goddess pentacle – the design for which has been keeping me busy for the past days. I look forward to sharing more about this work with you soon.
Some impressions from January and February 2018:
New ink work, finished under the influence of the “blue blood moon”. The nature event was not visible here, but the vibes were sensible. The “Wolf Shaman” is a commissioned piece, likewise are the Datura stramonium paper sigil talismans. Each is drawn on paper, which has been infused with corresponding plant extracts. I was nice to be creative today and I look forward to sending these out. I am also looking forward to the new moon. 🌚 #inkdrawings #inkart #drawings #esotericart #sigillamagica #wolfshaman #werewolf #aconitumnapellus #daturastramonium #plantsigils #plantart #plantalchemy #occultart #shamanicart #handdrawn #ensouled #papertalisman
The “Cursing Seal of Winter” pyrographed on black alder wood discs. The sigil is inspired by the Rauhnächte and winter blackthorn harvest. Available now in the Teufelskunst webshop! #winterscurse #sigil #wooddiscs #pyrography #sigillamagica #blackalderwood #snowflake #snowflakesymmetry #blackthorn #pinsofslumber #banefulmagic #blackmagic #curses #deathspells
Todays work: processing black henbane harvest from last year. I really love the spicy smell of black henbane! It’s even nicer in combination with black pepper and will make one delicious cursing blend… #blackhenbane #hyoscyamusniger #schwarzesbilsenkraut #banefulherbs #solanaceae #poisonousplants #witchplants #cursingincense
Today arrived these quality herbs from @blackgoatearth (Antinomian Antipodean). The whole package smells wonderfully herbaceous and spicy and vibrates with the power of its contents. I won’t reveal everything here, but wholeheartedly recommend to check out his incense blends and other venific creations! #mailday #herbalgoodness #herbs #firsthand #wildcrafted #witchherbs #veneficium

As I am typing this, the candle has already extinguished and there are nearly as many tiny air bubbles in the glass of water as dots on the ink drawing in the background.
My little fall equinox altar is made of tokens gathered during the past days. It also features a small glass of self-made hawthorn liqueur. The hawthorn goddess was addressed for empowerment at a time when I am down with flu and need to recharge both physically as well as spiritually.
The drawing is one of three drawings I did last week. It is the second in the small series and titled “Pathfinder”, since the shape reminded me of a creature equipped with plenty of sensors, which seems to be pushing forward against an icy storm. The third drawing is now in the possession of The Witching Veil, together with the autumn mandrake root depicted on it.
The incense burnt was the Black sacra from Luban Frankincense Supplier. It has a deeper, somewhat richer aroma than the green and white frankincense from Oman, and fits just perfectly for the season.
With the passing of the Fall Equinox, Samhain is just around the corner. I will hence begin preparing my presentation for this year’s Samhain Celebration in Gotha, which I am attending for the second time in a row.
Last but not least I thank all of you, who ordered my Dog Days incense. I have but one jar each left. The coming days I will work on new batches of Samhain incense, as well as restocking incense for Qayin and Lilith.
